company’s next steps after he delivered a rare update and revealed plans to implant a second human patient within “the next week or so.”in an early morning post on X suggesting that in the future amputees with Neuralink’s brain computer interface device could potentially move prosthetic limbs faster than they ever would have been to do so before they lost the limb.

The billionaire’s statement capped a series of tweets over the future directions of Neuralink, which he claimed would include, a device the billionaire has previously said could go on sale as early as the end of next year andMusk revealed Neuralink planned to surgically implant its experimental brain chip into a second human patient within “the next week or so,” despite having encountered hardware problems with their first patient, whose device partially detached from the brain a few weeks...

Musk said Neuralink is also taking steps to reduce the risk of the implant retracting from the brain like it did for its first patient, including sculpting the skull to help the device sit better, inserting threads deeper into the brain and removing air pockets left inside the skull after surgery, and is also developing an improved device that could potentially “double the bandwidth” offered by its current model.
